Did you know that there is an invisible enemy within that needs to be acknowledged before it can be defeated? Nobody is immune. The effects of it show up in everyone’s life. It keeps things as they always were. It creates fear of the unknown. It allows ignorance to thrive. It’s called stasis. Stasis—that force that keeps everything as it was before. The dictionary says it’s a state of stability, in which all forces are equal and opposing, therefore they cancel out each other. In life,...

Recently I watched a stunningly beautiful new rendition by the band, Disturbed. The power of the song demanded that I pay attention to the message. After hearing this song for years, I finally realized it spoke of two kinds of silences. The silence of quiet. The silence of no words. The silence as a grace. The silence we strive for in meditation. The silence where we exist as one. But there is another side of silence. The silence of being silenced. The silence of being afraid to speak the words...

We all know we see what we believe. It’s not the other way around. Although we usually live as if it was. So here’s the question. If we want to live the fullest life possible and express the highest idea of ourselves, is it possible to do so by holding on to a past belief about ourselves? No, it’s not. The Bible tells us that every day is the Lord’s day. Spirit’s day. Soul’s day. Every day is a new day. Science tells us that we renew continually. Skin regenerates every twenty-seven...

In the past few years, I have learned something, which I knew, but didn’t appreciate as much as I do now. In fact, I am pretty sure that I haven’t fully appreciated it yet, but I am on the road to opening my eyes to the fact that I can’t see what I am looking at. Neither can you. None of us can. We all approach everything with perception bias - intentional or unintentional. It’s the way it works. It takes many eyes, ears, hands, and hearts. And that, my friends, is fantastic, it truly...

Theology. It’s good for you. Gary is church historian by trade. His writing, speaking, and teaching explores the Christian past to equip today's disciples. Gary suggests that we all claim the riches we didn't know was ours. He says the more you know about your own family history, the wiser you can be about growing up and thriving. Same goes for your knowledge of your Christian heritage. Follow the good examples. Avoid repeating past mistakes. Find some wisdom in a world of confusion.

Del and I have been watching the Netflix series called the Crown. It’s so interesting to see the story of Queen Elizabeth’s life. As I watch it my admiration for QE has grown tremendously . I suppose I was like other people in America, barely registering that there is a Queen, wondering how old is she anyway, and perhaps thinking that the phrase, It’s good to be queen is actually true. Now I know it’s not. The life of being a queen wasn’t one that Elizabeth chose. She was born to it....

Legend has it, Megan was born with a book in her hands. When she was a kid, her mom would ground her from reading in order to get her to do her chores. Megan's dad — also an avid reader — introduced her to Tolkien in her late elementary years, and she never looked back. Megan loves escaping to worlds where magic and monsters are real, especially stories with kick-butt heroines and dangerously attractive heroes.

What do John McWade, John Francis, Mother Theresa, Henry David Thoreau, Eckhart Tolle, Susan Lamont, and Morpheus have in common? They know the value of silence, quiet, white space. We have a plethora of evidence that silence, quiet, contemplation is necessary, not sorta necessary, but absolutely necessary, for our mental and physical health and yet, we still tell ourselves we don’t have time for it.

About day to day living because we forget what comes first. In this Podcast, Deb shares her ups and her downs, and her tips for living each day to the fullest. As a CPA she has seen all the ways money can flow. These discoveries prompted her new website and...

RICHARD JONES SAID YES to ideas that completely changed his life, bringing it full circle into a life that he is thoroughly enjoying. He doesn’t only just say yes; he pro-actively asks if he can share. And that’s how I met him. I asked a Facebook group of podcasters if anyone had a story they wanted to share. Richard said yes he did - and I agreed! Here's what Richard told me: I recently had to make a major shift in my life. I worked for my hometown newspaper for 25 years. Things changed...

Gifts that we say yes to. Join us in saying yes to the tomato. PS – Read more about the importance of living...

I met my guest Les Roberts at a writers retreat. An author with thirty-three books to his name, he was there to teach us how to write good characters. But, he did more than that. He shared marvelous stories that captured us all as we listened. He even played the piano one night while another writer sang beautifully.Les shares how he writes, why he writes, and the how and why of the shift he made to move from a successful career in Los Angeles to choosing to moving to Cleveland, Ohio.

THIS IS ABOUT the perception and actuality of money. So many of us are confused and confounded by it. It’s no wonder. We have been trained that we need to get it and keep it, and yet the worldview game is set up to stop most of us from having it. Obviously, we need to shift our perception of wealth. And that is what we are going to do on this shift shuttle.  The wider the river, the bigger the flood. Let’s open the floodgates of wealth, Let’s be bold and follow our dreams, enjoying the...

THE MOMENT I started listening to my guest Amy Harrison’s podcast I started smiling, and it never stopped. I became an immediate fan of her advice and her outlook on life. Amy lives and shares her creative ideas and joy as a copywriter, but it is so much more than that. Her life has taken many twists and turns but creativity and being happy are the guideposts. I bet you won’t be able to take the smile off of your face either as you listen to the wisdom and inspiration Amy shares as we shift...

Years ago, when Del and I started thinking about making video’s for his business and then put them up on his website we were both completely stumped. We had absolutely no idea how to do it. So I did the obvious thing, I googled it, and was lucky enough to find my guest today who really, really, really knew how to do it. Not only that, he knows how to explain it. Who is this magic person? It’s Dave Kaminski, the founder of Web Video University. But, this podcast is not about making videos,...

This podcast is the second in the series where we explore the relationship between Quantum Physics and Spirituality, and the idea of living from the within to the without. I start by asking Del to review the idea that physicists begin by exploring the “without” and his answer should inspire even more questions. We hope it will lead you into deeper and deeper thoughts about the essence of life, and find joy in the knowledge that there is much more to it than what we see with our eyes.

My guest today is Cynthia Sue Larson. Cynthia’s website is Reality Shifters. With a name and focus like that, you would think we would have found each other years ago. And yet, it was just a few months ago that we discovered that the idea that we can, should, and do shift our realities and that we have a choice to shift our story was what we both have been talking about our whole lives. It was exciting for us, and as you listen to Cynthia I know it will be for you too. Cynthia’s background...

Prophecy and revelation, the magic of the number six, inner knowing and faith are just a few of the symbols and messages that Del and I discuss in this podcast about the month of June. That’s not all! We also talk about the porcupine, the moon of June, self-fulling prophecy, and dragons! We all pass through June once a year. Why not fully understand the messages, and symbols that it brings. It's a practice that is easy to follow and one everyone is the world can do at the exact same time. And...

One day I told my husband that I was going to add more into my life that I love, because I love it, and only for that reason. The next time I checked my email I found an email from someone I did not know, offering a retreat with all the creative things I had just said I wanted to add more of into my life. And I could drive to it! Of course I had to ask the email writer Claudia Taller to be a guest on this podcast. She had read my mind. Claudia writes and talks about a life spent exploring...

In this podcast I talk about the meaning behind Jonah and the whale, plus a little Native American and gaming symbolism thrown in. It’s about purpose, and living our unique spiritual blessing, instead of running, hiding, lying and waiting. And I tell two of my favorite jokes to get us started. How are you using your personal belly of the whale to transform your life.

Laurie Brown and I met on Instagram. I fell instantly in love with her posts filled with birds, and the beautiful jewelry she crafts in remembrance of them. I loved that she symbolized a heart based way to look at life, and once I talked to her I loved it even more. Laurie chooses her life based on what is most important to her, not what the world says is important. Laurie asks us all the question, what life do we want to live, what kind of world, what are our hearts calling for us to do. How...

So of course you can expect wonderful words of wisdom and deep insight learned from coaching thousands and thousands of people, and you certainly will hear that. But, you will also hear how she learned to stop hiding her “shout” and say no to environments and demands that didn’t fit who she is, relax into what she wanted instead of working to overcome it, and what happened to move her into listening...

I admit it, this is one of my favorite months. Not just because it is “our” month, and I have so many friends and family born in May, not just because it can be one of the most beautiful months of the year - no, it’s more than that. I love that May is the listener - thinker. Listening, and thinking sometimes appear to be lost arts in our hurry up and shut up world that we live in. In this month we can practice the idea of silence, and discover its treasures. In this podcast we celebrate...

In this podcast we explore the relationship between Quantum Physics and Spirituality. Are they the same? Are they different? How and why? Because there is so much to explore and learn from, we divided the subject into two podcasts. In this one we begin with the idea that everything begins within, and then we see it without. Whether we are talking about quantum physics or the human condition or spiritual big R Reality, this is true. Since this is true, it becomes imperative to understand what is...

Ah, the beauty of new beginnings. That’s April! This month we talk about the necessity to begin from the right premise. That we are all one. That we can stand within the center of the circle, or the center of the pause. That we can and must "see" much more than meets the eye. We also cover the number twelve in great detail, the collapse of the wave function, and what Mad Bear taught Del. Plus, the hawk, the east, the event horizon and black holes, Taiji, and the somersault into the...
